REVIEW | Long Hair, Don’t Care ft. IrresistibleMe

Articles / Beauty

Some time ago I was contacted by IrresistibleMe to write up a review of their extensions. Scratch that, a long time ago, but in the mean time I had massive break-outs and a painful break-up along with a very busy Summer season, so I thought it was time to get back on the saddle. If you saw my previous “Goddess of the Sea” shoot, then you were probably wondering “wait, did she always have hair this […]

I have to admit I feel extremely embarrassed yet unusually excited to post this. Anyone who knows me knows that I am always, without fail, the one behind the camera. I’ve never had my picture taken properly – that means, not including cellphones or pictures with people I love or taken on holiday. I’ve never been the one that has to stand there and at least try to look pretty. So when Caterina of Kateidoscope (who […]

TUTORIAL | Neon Spring Sunset

So when Cate asked me to take some pictures of her wearing a pair of very 1980s-themed leggings, I couldn’t help but ask her for something in return. I’ve never done a more “out there” makeup look on myself or any of my friends, or anywhere outside of makeup school, to be honest. And I have never used neon or bright colours for eyeshadow on myself or anyone else, ever. So this was the perfect excuse. […]

It’s that time of the year again when Caterina from Kateidoscope.com asks me to take pictures of her for her blog, and I decide to do her makeup to match her clothing. I’m quite shocked at how well this look turned out considering it was completely unplanned – I just knew I wanted to use yellow. Everything else was decided as I went along with the brush. Makeup look details, explanatory chart and products list coming […]

SKINCARE | (Video) Favourites & Routine

Beauty / Shopping

A lot of people ask me for skincare advice so here it is! I made a point of not putting anything on my face so you can see exactly what it’s like, especially under bright lights. I personally think it’s important to show what your skin actually looks like when you’re giving people advice on products. Remember this is by no means a works-for-all list of products. My skin jumped around a lot – first it […]

GRWM – Everyday Go-To Makeup

Hi everybody! I’m extremely late with this. My skincare one will come right after this (the only reason I’m doing this first is because I can’t find my thumbnail file from that video anywhere!). I filmed my first “get ready with me” video the other day and thought I’d link all the products I use on a daily basis so you know where to get them. Again, the websites I use all ship internationally! If you […]

MAKEOVER | Easy Gold Eye & Glowy Skin

I finally – finally – managed to get this up! You guys have no idea the issues we had with this. This is my first makeover of a series I’m hoping to do if I rope in enough friends/guinea pigs, featuring my good friend Caterina of Kateidoscope.com. She’s never been into makeup, so I thought I’d do an easy, everyday look on her and walk her through all the steps. Today she even asked me to […]

Calling All Beauties

  While I’ve been away I’ve been silently mulling over an idea. I see so many collaboration requests on work forums and blogger Facebook groups, but it’s usually commercially inclined or based on a “like for like, follow for follow” basis. I want my follower count to go up organically, not because I liked someone’s holistic yoga page or gave their homemade soaps a shout-out on an Instagram picture! One of my goals for 2016 […]

Haircare | The Right Cut + Favourite No Heat Styling Products

  I’m very picky with my hair. My boyfriend knows it and my mom can’t hear me cry about how three strands fell off in the shower anymore. I’m downright paranoid about having nice hair, mainly because I don’t want to have to bother with it. Sounds paradoxical, right? Well, not really. Now here is a set of pictures of my hair – bad cut vs good cut. Sorry for a lack of good digital photographs but […]
